NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 19)

FANDUEL

Alex Ovechkin (WSH) (W) – $10,400

  • 4 game slate and the first game starts early at 11am PST. Starting off with the best spend up on the slate, the Great Eight. Ovi is by far my favorite stud and I will be playing him on both sites. Definitely a better play on DK as he is cheaper but for cash games, you shouldn’t fade Ovi who looks like he is still in his prime.

Dougie Hamilton (NJ) (D) – $6,400

  • Always a safe option for cash games, Dougie grades out to be the best defensemen on the slate. For 6.4k, he provides a high floor and I feel fine with playing these two. There are some value plays like Zacha at 4.3k so you can feel comfortable playing Ovi and Dougie today.

DRAFTKINGS

Alex Ovechkin (WAS) (LW) – $9,600

  • Too cheap here for 9.6k. Ovi always has the potential to rack up the shots and potentially score a few goals.

Yegor Sharangovich (NJ) (C) – $2,500

  • For min price, Yegor is the best salary relief play and it allows you to play the guys I’ve listed below as cash play considerations.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Pavel Zacha (NJ) (W) – $4,300
